Sundry observations of moral virtues, and their contrary vices (10-24).
Proverbs 11:1 A false balaunce is an abhominacion vnto the LORDE, but a true weight pleaseth him. Proverbs 11:2 Where pryde is, there is shame also and confucion: but where as is lowlynes, there is wysdome. Proverbs 11:3 The innocent dealynge of the iust shal lede them, but the vnfaithfulnesse of the despysers shalbe their owne destruccion. Proverbs 11:4 Riches helpe not in the daye of vengeaunce, but rightuousnesse delyuereth fro death. Proverbs 11:5 The rightuousnes of ye innocent ordreth his waye, but the vngodly shal fall in his owne wickednesse. Proverbs 11:6 The rightuousnesse of the iust shal delyuer them, but the despysers shalbe taken in their owne vngodlynesse. Proverbs 11:7 When an vngodly man dyeth, his hope is gone, the confydence of riches shal perish. Proverbs 11:8 The rightuous shalbe delyuered out of trouble, & the vngodly shal come in his steade. Proverbs 11:9 Thorow ye mouth of ye dyssembler is his neghboure destroyed, but thorow knowlege shal the iust be delyuered. Proverbs 11:10 When it goeth well with the rightuous, the cite is mery: and when the vngodly perish, there is gladnesse. Proverbs 11:11 When the iust are in wealth, the cite prospereth: but whan the vngodly haue the rule, it decayeth. Proverbs 11:12 A foole bryngeth vp a slaunder of his neghboure, but a wyse man wil kepe it secrete. Proverbs 11:13 A dyssemblynge person wil discouer preuy thinges, but he that is of a faithfull hert, will kepe councel. Proverbs 11:14 Where no good councel is there the people decaye: but where as are many that can geue councell, there is wealth. Proverbs 11:15 He that is suertye for a straunger, hurteth himself: but he that medleth not with suerteshippe, is sure. Proverbs 11:16 A gracious woma manteyneth honestie, as for the mightie, they manteyne ryches. Proverbs 11:17 He yt hath a gentle liberall stomacke, is mercifull: but who so hurteth his neghbor, is a tyraut. Proverbs 11:18 The laboure of the vngodly prospereth not, but he that soweth rightuosnes, shal receaue a sure rewarde. Proverbs 11:19 Like as rightuousnes bryngeth life, eue so to cleue vnto euell, bryngeth death. Proverbs 11:20 The LORDE abhorreth a fayned hert, but he hath pleasure in them that are vndefyled. Proverbs 11:21 It shal not helpe ye wicked, though they laye all their hondes together, but the sede of the rightuous shalbe preserued. Proverbs 11:22 A fayre woman without discrete maners, is like a rynge of golde in a swynes snoute. Proverbs 11:23 The iust laboure for peace and traquylite, but the vngodly for disquyetnesse. Proverbs 11:24 Some man geueth out his goodes, and is the richer, but ye nygarde (hauynge ynough) wil departe from nothinge, and yet is euer in pouerte. Proverbs 11:25 He that is lyberall in geuynge, shal haue plenty: and he that watereth, shalbe watered also himself. Proverbs 11:26 Who so hoordeth vp his corne, shalbe cursed amonge the people: but blessynge shal light vpon his heade that selleth it. Proverbs 11:27 He that laboureth for honesty fyndeth his desyre: but who so seketh after myschefe, it shal happe vnto him. Proverbs 11:28 He that trusteth in his riches, shal haue a fall, but ye rightuous shal florish as the grene leaf. Proverbs 11:29 Who so maketh disquyetnesse in his owne house, he shal haue wynde for his heretage, and the foole shal be seruaunt to the wyse. Proverbs 11:30 The frute of the rightuous is as the tre of life, a wyse man also wynneth mens soules. Proverbs 11:31 Yf ye rightuous be recopesed vpo earth how moch more the the vngodly & ye synner?
